Both Kate and Pippa photograph well. Doesn't the British press need at least some celebrities? These two certainly qualify and Pippa, in particular, is out and about enough to give the press something to photograph and write about (which is what the press does for a living, after all).

Then people read the articles and post them here, and even more people read them.

Catherine is not a celebrity. She is a royal. Royals, while public individuals, are not celebrities.

As for the case of Pippa as a celebrity, that's debatable, but the argument of "the British press need at least some celebrities" is a bit... Well, it's not like there are no famous people living in Britain who aren't royals.

I have to disagree. Catherine gets the space she does in say, Vanity Fair or People in the US - because she is a celeb to their audience. She may be royal - but there are lots of royals who don't get the Tabloid space she does. There are lots of royals that the average person here does not give two figs about. A lot of royal men fall in that category.

You and I may consider her a royal - but there are lots of opinions in the world.

The royals aren't celebrities but they live in a celebrity culture and are celebrated people.

Pippa has gained some fame for being Catherine's sister. It's something that was done to Diana's sisters as well back in the 80's, although things are more intense today with modern day technology. There's a certain privilege being associated with the world's most famous royal families.

It's very true. I'm glad for her that her career isn't being hurt and that she's not letting the fame that she never sought or asked for define her. And I love that she's refused interviews.

Diana's sisters never got the press coverage that Pippa gets! It all started with her appearance at the wedding in that white dress, and only escalated from there.

Diana's sister were mostly overlooked except for a (very brief) period when Sarah was dating Charles. Jane Fellowes was completely under the radar.

I'm actually surprised she has a Twitter account? And seems kinda soon to get married but whatever floats their boat. Congratulations to them both.

That's not a verified twitter account, which means there's a 99% chance it's fake.

And now that I see it has only 312 followers, I'm going with 100% chance it's fake.

Pippa doesn't have twitter, she mentioned it in one of her columns a while back I think.

And in other news sources close to Pippa Middleton deny she is engaged. Sources also confirm no plans to get engaged in the near future

Well I thought Pippa was going to announce her engagement today since its her birthday. Has anyone over the pond heard anything? There was nothing said here in the U.S. as far as I know.

Grrrr - the daily fail.

While Pippa mentions she found her coach fanciable, the DM describes him as the object of teenage lust. As if those two are indistinguishable.

Marlborough is described as a BASTION OF PRIVILEGE and then later the DM notes that Pips was there on a scholarship.

Eeedgits.

"On July 4th supporters of Mary Hare School, Newbury, the national school for deaf children, flocked to Newbury Racecourse to enjoy an evening of racing.
Pippa Middleton, Mary Hare’s ambassador enjoyed the evening, including the very entertaining magician who both baffled guests with his dexterity and amused with his wit."
